Yo, Albanians from Albania have weird fucking names. What's up with that?

Most and least urbanized common male names in Albania.

Albanians with names are like gypsies. They name their children with the most random names from other countries sometimes. Like guys are called Tonibleer from the period that Tony Blair was our chief adviser for our government.

That’s pretty old though. Those names are at least 20-30 years old. 15 years and younger kids have like 99% western names.
Rrok, Dede, Luigj, Ergys, Arian at least were Albanian names 😂

The names on that list look pretty normal to me. Am I missing something?

Gjergj, Pal, Kristian, Gjin, Luigj, Lek, Mark, Nikoll, Ded, Kol, Ndue, Valentin, Llesh, Rrok. These are all the names I heard growing up. I never met anybody named flag or other communist names like that.

Names like Enea, Vasillaq, Dhimitraq, Petraq are not common to me but I assume these are Orthodox names. Is Koço Orthodox as well? Sounds like some name a guy from Korçë in the 1920s would have.

And does this list mean that Orthodox Albanians mainly live in cities?
